"The intention of my tweet was never to demean or personally attack anyone. It was the mere frustration of a helpless citizen of Mumbai, " said Neha Dhupia in a statement.



She added, "I've tried to take the high road on the outcome and ignore the people who've abused me and my family and nauseam online. But I felt intimidated as protestors stood outside my house. I am grateful to our police for protecting us and request people to see that my words were about a subject and not a person."



"My goal was never to hurt anyone's sentiments. I have wholeheartedly and consistently supported the government's movements like" Yoga Day "and "Swachh Bharat" as I will do in the future as well. I hope we can focus on the issues that matter and that my appeal to improve our civic amenities is taken in the right way," read her statement.
